Chianti Classico Riserva Tenuta Perano Frescobaldi 2016 (1.5L)
94 points, Monica Larner, Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: “A new estate in Chianti Classico, Frescobaldi's Tenuta Perano is on a roll. Their 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva Tenuta Perano is impeccably balanced and rich, yet the wine remains bright and lifted at the same time. You get that proverbial twofold punch of power and elegance that is such a special and happy achievement. Dark cherry, blackberry, sweet spice and crushed limestone emerge carefully from the bouquet. I must say, I prefer this wine to a great majority of Brunello samples recently tasted.” 10/20
93 points, James Suckling, www.jamessuckling.com: "This is a decadent Perano with lots of dried dark fruit, ranging from blackberries to dried elderberries and vanilla. Full body, plenty of plush dark fruit, muscular tannins and a fruit-driven finish. Drink from 2024." 11/19
93 points, Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator: “Pure and saturated flavors of black currant, blackberry and violet are the hallmarks of this red. Harmonious and approachable despite the solidly built structure, featuring freshness and a lingering aftertaste of fruit, earth and iron. Best from 2021 through 2036. 250 cases imported.” 10/20
95 Points, Aldo Fiordelli, Decanter: "Dense on the palate with silky ripe tannins, cherry fruit and a concentration of darker fruit, along with perfectly integrated structure. A great wine, with great potentialâ€¦ â€“ everything you hope for, quietly expressed. Intense and vibrant: a super wineâ€¦The tannins are like silk rope: smooth yet ample and gathered. Very beautiful and engaging, long, concentrated and intense" 1/20
